An easy Monday and Tuesday at El Nido, although today started with desperate tries to sink in Spanish Everything learned at Fridays intercambio seems to have evaporated. I really need to be able to say more than beer and toilet – maybe.
Next my elec skills got a day out. Running new cables and fitting bulkhead lights in the workshop passed a few hours until the owners demanded work stopped for beer o clock. Ever obedient I ran and got my Dimple mug from Frankia. A good time to chat over the coming few days of my house-sit at El Nido (with more when I’m free).
It was a tough call between the unicycle and the all-terrain vehicle. It took nearly a second!The Rambla’s are great to get around on, but these dry riverbeds took a battering with the floods and recent snow storms. It has made the ATV drive all the more fun though.
Over the mountains to visit my neighbor for lunch. I was going to help with a couple of car problems: rear tail light, indicators and a faulty door mechanism that had the passenger back-door jammed shut (I’d repaired the other side on my Xmas sit).The lunch was a lovely homemade soup, freshly baked bread (chilli bread- fantastic) and a beer. I fixed the door and lights, then left this beautiful house (until my sit there 12th to 20th Feb).
Back over the mountains and home to feed the dogs, but first a visit to Deryk and Margaret to check the cable I had for their irrigation pump job was correct …. and a sociable beer. It was nice to hear from Margaret that my blog was being used to help a Spanish group learning English. I guess blogs are written in a more everyday use style.
Unicycle practice tomorrow 🤹🏼♀️
